T-Will To Make D-League Debut Thursday in Springfield

Terrence Williams will be on the court in Springfield, MA. Thursday as his new team, the D-League Armor, plays the Maine Red Claws. Between now and Sunday, T-Will will play three games.  On Saturday, it's the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants, then Sunday, the Red Claws again, both at Springfield.

Any hope Williams had of returning early were dashed Wednesday night when Avery Johnson said he was happy with the way Devin Harris' two back-ups played vs. OKC.  "We’re staying the course there,’’ he said. "He’ll go down there and play a lot of minutes. We’ll evaluate that as time goes on.’’ Billy King and assistant coach Tom Barrise traveled to Springfield Thursday to begin that evaluation.

But in talking with Adam Zagoria of SNY Tuesday, Johnson may have given a hint as to how long Williams could be staying in western Massachusetts.  Asked if he thought D-league was a good option for young players, the coach repliced, "If a guy is going to play six or eight minutes a game, why not? I think it's a great tool, sometimes even if it's just for a week."
